Spicy Salmon Patties Recipe

Spicy Salmon Patties Recipe

Made with canned salmon, these patties are good hot or cold. I usually serve them on buns with slices of ripe tomato, sweet red onion, and red and green bell pepper. —Barbara Coston of Little Rock, Arkansas

Ingredients

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 12 fat-free pretzels
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons salt-free spicy seasoning blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) salmon, drained, bones and skin removed
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  • 1. Place the first five ingredients in a blender or food processor; cover and process until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine the egg substitute, salmon, onion, green pepper, jalapeno, garlic and 1/2 cup crumb mixture. Shape into eight 1/2-in.-thick patties. Coat with remaining crumb mixture.

Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
